Bush – the Gold Standard for Screw-ups

This entire video is great, but it really gets interesting around the 4:50 mark, when Jon Stewart points out the stunning irony of conservative pundits comparing Obama to Bush; for example, claiming that the nomination of Elena Kagan is “Obama’s Harriet Miers”, the oil spill is “Obama’s Katrina”, health care is “Obama’s Iraq”, and on and on. By doing this, conservatives are admitting that no matter what Obama does that they don’t like, Bush did something even stupider. Even more hypocritically, these same pundits vigorously defended Bush when he was screwing up, but now are even more vigorously attacking Obama by trying to paint him as being almost as bad as Bush. It boggles the mind.
